Girls Aloud are a band in the sense that they're a group of people performing music. Of course it's mainly the producers and songwriters (helps that the girls are sassy enough to pull it off though).

Seriously, Biology is one of the most interesting things I've heard in ages. Chris Martin dreams about writing songs as good as that.

Took about a week whenever I had a spare minute I spent it listening to a bunch of singles. I think I relistened to like 300 or something stupid like that. Just an excuse to listen to a bunch of great songs really.

I really don't like making these sorts of lists. They're just too definite for me. I change my musical mood too much from day to day. Plus, since this lists seems to be only about songs released as singles, I just don't know what songs that has and which has not been released as singles good enough to make such a list.

A musical paper in Sweden a few years ago had a brilliant idea. They decided to list the best 3014 songs ever. The great thing is that you could add whichever songs you felt like, without it beeing "wrong" or whatever. Plus the top ten are allways the absolutely least interesting in pretty much all these lists. Off-course that 3014 best songs list was never near to beeing completed. As it should never be.

But I'm pretty impressed that you've managed to make such lists. All I can come up with at the moment is this:

The Gossip - Standing in the way of control
Lightning Bolt - Assasins

And I can not rate either song over the next, are not sure if either has been released as singles and is only slightly sure that both has been released in the 00's.
So in other words, this post is pretty much pointless is this thread.

don't under-rate the permatan and tit tape, that's what really pulls the songs through.

It helps the videos for sure.

Seriously though, if you listen to I predict a riot and then Biology and put who did them out of your mind it's pretty clear that the former is far more of a conventional pop song than the latter.

I don't see why reality show pop has to be bad. Some of it is, some of it isn't. Just like every other form of music.

Personally I'd think Girls Aloud have about 7 or 8 songs better than the best Kaiser Chiefs song.

Wouldn't call them naff. Bon Jovi, Van Halen and Korn take up my naff music that I like quota. GA songs are well written and brilliantly produced. I'm not sure I'd even call Biology a pop song seeing as it's essentially a bunch of verses strung together.

They're like the Radiohead of reality shows whereas One True Voice were the Hard-Fi.
